I invested in two of these beauties: Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Today, as I popped onto Amazon to buy The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (I’m caving in to the hype), I see these:
To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of F. Scott Fitzgeralds death, these beautiful Art-Deco inspired books will be released on 4th November.
Again designed by Coralie Bickford Smith, Senior Cover Designer at Penguin, the books incorporate a detachable bookmark on the inside cover of the dustjacket. In the past, I have pondered over the point of dustjackets, but these are… gorgeous! Each dustjacket has a gold, silver or bronze-foil design that echoes the magic of the Jazz-Age!
There are 6 in the collection: The Beautiful and Damned; Flapper and Philosophers: The Collected Short Stories of F Scott Fitzgerald; The Great Gatsby; The Last Tycoon; Tender is the Night; and This Side of Paradise.
On the inside of each dustjacket is a memorable quote from the book. I love this quote from The Great Gatsby, and I’ve already pre-ordered my copy!
You can pre-order and see the entire collection here. (great Christmas pressies! *hint, hint)
